Maybe “I want to too” is not the best picture in the portfolio of Alexei Balabanov, but this last movie director, on whom the Russian cinema was held for two decades. Almost any of his work could get into our TOP, but we chose this one to honor the memory of the master.

The only trouble is that not everyone is taken there, and some are themselves ready to reject paradise.

Film "Collector" 2016 year

Producer: Alexey Krasovsky

Year of issue: 2016

A very curious picture in which Konstantin Khabensky appears before us in the form of a cold-blooded collector. Needless to say, the profession is not the most noble, but everyone earns as best he can, and the main character knows his job well.

Throughout the film, we are shown how important it is to evaluate people holistically. The viewer’s opinion about the main character, Arthur, is constantly changing, all his actions are ambiguous and perfectly demonstrate the human nature. There are no good and bad people, categories are inappropriate here.

The viewer sees this on the example of a blackmailer who hung a label on Arthur and did not want to take it off, even after learning that the collector was not involved in the departure of her (as it turned out, living) husband. Sometimes we also do this in life.
